    Income = a gain or recurrent benefit usually measured in money that derives from capital or labour.

    Revenue = the income that a government or company receives regularly.

    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi Magdalena,

    income = money of all kinds coming in regularly, esp. to a person, family or organization, such as salary or wages from employment, rent from property, profits from business, and fees for professional services.

    revenue = 1. money received in the form of cash, cheques, etc. during a particular period
    2. yield from property or investment; income.
    3. in public finance, the income receive by the State from taxation (State income)

    revenue = the amount of money that a company actually receives during a specific period, including discounts and deductions for returned merchandise. It is the "top line" or "gross income" figure from which costs are subtracted to determine net income.
